Speaking at the launch Mayor Murphy said “It is great to be here today to turn the sod on this project to provide homes for families and older persons being delivered by Respond. I’d like to acknowledge the partnership between Cork County Council the Housing Agency, the Housing Finance Agency and Respond coming together to supply the housing local people want, need and deserve.”
Minister of State David Stanton T.D who was the Government representative at the event stated “I am delighted to be here today on behalf of my colleague Minister Eoghan Murphy T.D. I’m very aware of the high standards that Respond achieved in their housing developments around the country. I’m sure the residents and families who will get to live in this state of the art development will be very pleased with their new homes in Fermoy. The Government is working towards many more such housing projects across the country.”
